The Shwekey Shrug

I've been having a sense of déjà vu at the yeshivish gigs I've played over the past two months. I've had virtually the same conversation at many of these gigs.

Here's how it goes:

Yeshiva Bachur:"Can you play some new Shwekey?"

Dm: "Sure."

Yeshiva Bachur: "What do you think of the new Shwekey album?"

Dm: shrugs

Yeshiva Bachur: "Yeah, it's not as good as his other album. No good songs."

Dm: shrugs

Yeshiva Bachur: "So, can you play "Ma, Ma, Ma?"
